A self catering chalet in the Savoie region of France for superb low-cost skiing and summer alpine holidays and less than one hour’s drive from Geneva airport.  Click on images to enlarge.

Our chalet La Bonne Vie, completed in July 2009, is situated on a hillside on the outskirts of the village of Le Chatelard in the heart of the Massif des Bauges regional park. It enjoys superb views through the valley towards the mountains and is a 30 minute drive from the beautiful and picturesque towns of Annecy and Aix-Les Bains. We would like to share with you this little explored part of France, an area we think is a hidden gem!

Le Chatelard is perched on the side of a valley and is easily accessible by road but still remains unspoilt and retains a certain charm with its old store fronts and little alleys leading up towards the church. It is a quiet, friendly village with a supermarket, bakery, bar and hotel/restaurant, tourist information, bank and post office and a local food market every Friday morning. It is at the heart of Les Bauges mountains, an area of outstanding natural beauty, heritage and tradition and it makes a great base to explore a wide range of outdoor activities or to simply relax.
